Toronto Raptors vs. Atlanta Hawks: Game preview, TV channel, start time, injury report – Sporting News

The Raptors look to get back on track Saturday when they travel to face the Hawks on the second end of a back-to-back.

Toronto is coming off of a rough performance in Charlotte in which it trailed by as many as 41 points before losing by 32. As rough as Friday night was, it only counts as one loss and the Raptors have been impressive in back-to-backs this season.

TAKEAWAYS: Raptors routed by Hornets despite career-high 28 points from Scottie Barnes

Complicating matters is that OG Anunoby is out and both Fred VanVleet (knee) and Pascal Siakam (flu-like symptoms) are listed as questionable for Saturday night’s game, but up to this point Toronto is 8-3 on the second end of back-to-backs.

Standing in the way is a Hawks team that looks to bounce back from a hard-fought loss to the Bulls on Thursday.

In Chicago, Danilo Gallinari led the way for Atlanta with 26 points (on 10 of 18 shooting) and nine rebounds, compensating for the struggles of Trae Young, who scored 14 points while shooting 3 of 17 from the field and missing all five of his 3-point attempts.

John Collins remains out with a strained right foot.
